Will Ham came in Tuesday morning from the sheep camp to east a Repub- lican vote. He brought a healthy crop of whiskers with him. Jim Moore, an old Bonanza miner, who has been under the doctor's ears for the past three weeks at the Eure- ka hotel, is slowly failing. The Jews are recla:'ming their homes in Jerusalem--Berlin is celebrating the election of the most Honorable "Bookie" Fellers, constable of the town of Saguache. Mr. and Mrs. Les Noland returned Monday from Kansas City. They drove the big ear ever for the folks to use: this winter. On their return they vis- ited friends at Pueblo. Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Thomason have been spending a week with Mr. and Mrs. A.C. Swayze of Moffat be- fore leaving for Kansas City, where they will remain for the winter. W. C. Briggs informs this office that he decided on Wednesday morning that he would not, under the most urgent request, serve Saguache and Custer counties as their representative. Gee. McMillon is a good scout and al- ways was. He will dispose of his busi- ness, rent the building, waves all ex- emptions, joins the army, go to fight- ing for his country. George is no slacker. The three children of Joe Fuson are down with the flu. The little girl, Fay, is very sick, the latest news is that her temperature is running very high, but she is not believed to be in a serious condition. Reports come trom Gunnison this morning that all roads were fenced and no one permitted on or off trains, over half the population are down with the "flu." Over 700 cases reported from Monte Vista. With the election over and the town quarantined, the stores to close at five o'clock, and no games of sport of any nature whatever, it seems to bring the telephone into special demand for town and country gossip, just to pass the time you know. Mrs. D. E. Wenger received the sad news of her brother's death Monday night. Sarg'r Gale Sager 22, lost his life in France while serving his country. He leaves a wife and baby. He left home on the 8th of May and the baby was born on the following July 8th. The two general stores, Means & Ashley and the Gotthelf & Tarbell stores will start Friday by taking an hour from each erie of the day by open- ing atSa. m. and closing at 5 p. m. Saturday to close at 7 o'clock sharp. On Monday morning the press feed- ers refused to go to work, and there is not a single cylinder press running up to last night outside the daily papers, therefore the Crescent will be shy the patent this week. The continued story will appear next week. The Crescent received anot~ler line from Bud Boyd saying that everything at the front was progressing rapidly. American boys everywhere and looks more like the good old U. S. A. than France, but it will look more like h--I when all our boys get started at the ~uns, Regards to all, Creger. This was an absolutely credi- table campaign between the two gen- tlemen. Kate Newcomb for county superin- tendent of schools, won over Mrs. Pearl Moody, the democratic candidate. Kate's friends proved loyal and gave every assistance possible for her elec- tion. Well, of course, Alex Russell was re- elected sheriff before the primaries. Barney Tough, his opponent, conceded the return engagement of Alex before he started in. Both gentlemen were clean from the olio to the grand finale. Alex needed the job while. Barney was better off without it. Harry Mc'arthy, once more elected assessor. His opponent a as A B. Mc- Rae, who was placed on the ticket to fill the Democratic vacancy. This alst was a respectable set-to. George Woodard defeated Bill Whit ten for county commissioner..No fight between these candidates, one was two busy and the other didn't care. This is Mr. Woodard's second term serving on the county board. For State Senator, Dr. McFadzean of Del Norte, was elected over Loren Sylvester, the mayor of Monte Vista. Democrats and Republicans conceded the defeat of Mr. Sylvester through the late epidemic, Spanish influenza, which confined" him to his bed and he was unable to be out, also the voters of his home city were mostly quarantined at their homes leaving a very small vote. W. E. Gardner, Republican, came through with a creditable majority over W. C. Briggs, Democrat, for represen- tative of Saguache and Custercounties. Custer county, always considered strong Democratic, supported the Re- publican ticket from top to the very bottom. W.C. Briggs leas the Demo- cratic ticket over all. This season's potato crop has been moved with more rapidity than has the crop of former years. More cars have been sent to this county and with great- er regularity. To date orders for 56 head of hogs have been received by the County agent to be shipped in next January. )Iust Pay Up On account of waving all objections and making my application for a posi- tion with U.

You can tell Aunt Nett that I was not more than twenty miles from Clydewhen I went over the top this time. You asked me why I didn't join the band? Well I have several reasons, one is I don't know if I could', the other is that they are stretcher bearers in battle, and be- lieve I prefer the infantry. You get shot up in the band just the same as in the ranks, but in the ranks you get a chance to shoot back, at least I was shooting back when ~ got hit.
